Charismatic saxophonist Lakecia Benjamin recently released a video for her upcoming solo album, Retox. The funky soul tune is called “Jump And Shout” and features Lakedcia partying all around the city with her pals.

The young musician has played with Stevie Wonder, Alicia Keys, The Roots and Macy Gray, and is more than ready to leave her mark as a one woman powerhouse.

Playing composer, producer, and saxophonist on her new album, Lakecia is really showing her range with this project. “This album is really a fruition of years of songwriting as much as it is a showcase for my sax playing and horn arrangements,” she says.

Retox drops June 12.
